Questions being asked since the release:

Q. I don't have facebook--can I still take the light room lab classes?

A. Great question! Yes, you definitely can still participate in the lessons/assignments and the live webinars. The only thing FB will be used for is answering questions and giving feedback on assignments. You can send me questions to my email (provided for all those who register) and I can answer that way.


Q. Will we have to be online at the exact time of the class or will they be recorded if we're unavailable for one or live in a different time zone?
A. We just ask that you be online for the first live webinar on the 14th. After that they will all be recorded and available to you at any time. We are also offering a BONUS webinar at the end, which we'd love to have you on for.  If you can't, we'll send you a link for the recording.


Q. Can we download the videos so we can reference them at any time?  How long will the content be available?
A. Yes, you'll have until September 30th to download the videos and content.  This will give you plenty of time to catch up if you fall behind or download for your own reference.


Q. What happens after I sign-up?
A. Upon signing up you'll receive a welcome letter and your bonuses!  We'll start with our first live webinar on June 14th and go over the class with you.  Our first video and instructions will be sent out on June 15th. Each Monday we'll be delivering new content to your email and will direct you to the class.  We'd love to have you involved with our private facebook group, too.  This is just for this Lightroom Lab class.  

Q. Do I have to be there for each class? Can I access it whenever I want?
A. Yes, you sure can. You don't have to be available for the live webinars, we'll have them available in our class for you to view later. Each week we'll cover a different module and work on it through the week. If you miss a week, you can always catch up later. All materials will be available to you through the end of 2015.
